Episode 23 of Fun Digica just went up.

The new episode of Fun Digica has Cody and Hideyoshi introduce 7 cards from Booster Set 2 Ultimate Power!



Let's look at the cards! A few of these we've seen previews of in V-Jump, or seen aspects of the art elsewhere, but detailed looks at the cards is always a nice treat. Moreso since we got 2 more just awhile ago today!



We start with a card featuring Algomon in his Baby 2 form. The art has a nice effect to it, almost like you can imagine it being done with small sponges or something like that.
Gomamon returns for the new set! He's underwater and upside down with some nice color and light tricks being done with the coloring.
Then we have Birdramon. The main focus here is on the heavy fire effects, which catches the eye nicely.
WarGreymon we knew we were getting, and we've seen the art, but not quite this clear. It has a really nice 'anime but more detailed' look to it.
Then we get the option card Glorious Burst, featuring ShineGreymon charging up the attack. This is another one with some nice lighting effects on it.
Diablomon! He looks very evil... and sharp. There is a nice blurring effect on his arm that is closer to the camera, giving an interesting depth effect.
Last up is Hikari. Won't go into this one much, as we saw it just a few days ago.



Update- The episode has been temporarily pulled due to an error regarding Diablomon.



This doesn't effect the rest of the cards and we will add the new embed when it is available.

Update- The corrected version has been added in the above embed.




Digimon Card Game Booster Set 2 Ultimate Power is scheduled to release on July 22nd.

Diaboromon
[When Attacking] play a Diaboromon Token without paying its cost (Digimon card, Cost: 14, Lv. 6, White, Mega, Unknown, Unidentified, 3,000 DP)
[Both players turn] if this card would be destroyed by battle, you may destroy another "Diaboromon" your have instead

WarGreymon
<Blocker> <Reboot>

Birdramon
[When Attacking] if you are attacking a Player or Security, this Digimon gets +4000 DP

Gomamon
the cost of this card in your hand is reduced by 1 for each of your opponent's Digimon without Digivolution Sources

Algomon Lv. 2
[Digivolve Ability]: [Your turn] if this Digimon becomes Active during your Active Phase, get +1 Memory

Glorious Burst
the cost of this card in your hand is reduced by 1 for each of your Yellow Tamers.
[Main] 1 of your opponent's Digimon get -12,000 DP

Hikari
[At the Beginning of your Turn] when your Security is 3 or less, gain +1 Memory
[Security] play this card without paying its cost

I wasn't expecting War Greymon to be so simple. Glorious Burst is very similar to Seven Heavens from the Yellow starter deck only that card reduces 10,000 DP, costs 7 to play, and has a security skill that plays the card without payng the cost when flipped

Ah that's a surprise Algomon Baby II didn't include Baby I in his card...

I think Gomamon gotten too many cards... Like 5?

Birdramon's artwork look like it's old 3D model. But too awesome!

Diaboromon produces a copy of himself in card effect? How cool is that! Can't wait to see what kind of effect Armagemon will have!

Lol, poor Gomamon. He's like that super frequent Common card that everyone and their mothers will have a bunch of. But to Bandai's credit, at least he has different card art for each set he appears in so they put in some effort at least in comparison to say Konami.

Pretty surprised Diablomon is White, there goes my White=Jogress theory. Awesome art all around, as expected, and this WarGreymon looks like the most effective blocker so far.

I didn't think about Diaboromon enough earlier to realize just how good he is. Every single time he attacks it's super safe since if your opponent blocks, powers up their Digimon with an Option card, or he gets attacked by security and he is destroyed in any of these scenarios they suddenly just hit a Shadow Clone Substitution Jutsu as if this was Naruto as they kill the token of himself he just made instead of the real Diaboromon every time.
Omnimon hard counters it but if your opponent doesn't have Omnimon, Diaboromon most likely will be sticking around for the rest of the game as he's just too dang hard to get rid of. If you play Diaboromon in Purple with the Purple Yamato, he's even more difficult to get rid of as Yamato brings him back to your hand

he's a white card that only evolves from black Digimon, but the only thing that tells you this is the white box behind his name and ability which I definitely think is way more of a design issue than it is anybody's fault for not noticing. This colorblind YouTuber I watch that makes Digimon Card Game content (Wossy Plays) constantly brings up the issue that he physically cannot differentiate between blue and purple cards as there is no written indicator of which color is which

The whole Keramon line in Battle Spirits were rainbow-color, instead of mono-color. It's probably a representation of the line's uniqueness and how they differ from other Digimon. Similarly, that seems to be the same intent with Diablomon's White.

However, based on the limited examples available, White seems to be reserved for peak-level Lv-6/Lv-7 cards, so the rest of the line was evidently assigned the next best alternative to White, Black. Understandable, as there is little to no support for an actual full-White deck.

The reason for Diaboromon to be white is that it'd much too strong if it was black. The black Tai card gives all black Digimon +1000DP, and on top of that, being a black Digimon leave the door open for black Option cards. Being white means black Option cards need something else from the black deck on the board, and doesn't get the boost from Tai. On top of that, were Diaboromon a black Digimon, then Milleniumon would be able to evolve from it, or worse, evolve from a token. White seems to be reserved for the most powerful Digimon, simply for game balance.

WarGreymon is also a great card, works very well with the black Greymon and MetalGreymon cards we've seen. It's to the point that I think this one is better than either of the red ones we've gotten so far.

Diablomon is literally the naruto of digimon period.

The episode has been pulled from the Card Game Youtube temporarily to fix a mistake regarding Diablomon.

We added the error notice in the news post, and will readd the episode when available.

Diablomon debuts, immediately causes an error and makes Bandai pull a video. That accidental fourth wall flavor 😂

Now that's scary. Even being the internet meme isn't enough but it reached into the real life outside of its own realm. Did it angered because of Algomon Babies look like it's weird alien version of Kuramon?

Even taking a joke too seriously. :LOL:

Still a scary as heck thought to think about a vengeful Diablomon.

Good thing Diablomon's mind is only capable of having destructive but childish thoughts. Proven its quotes in the movies and Chronicle X pets.
Only vengeful Diablomon is Armagemon. I don't know if Armagemon got manipulating skills as Diablomon did.

Can't wait to see if Armagemon in this new card will get scary effects that are way powerful.
